  1. A Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS)

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A08075

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. (AI) and the Oklahoma State University (OKState) detail the development of a novel Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS). Key innovations of the proposed system include: a) the use of a small Whispering- Gallery- Mode (WGM) cavity to achieve very long pathlength; and b) the integration of the WGM cavity with the conventional pulsed and continu ...

  3. HARV/LRF: Head-Aimed Remote Vision System for Surveillance and Targeting

    SBC: CHATTEN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: A07044

    This proposal addresses the need for a smart, network-compatible, enhanced head-aimed video sensor system to enable geo-location and target hand-off from robotic platforms. The sensor system provides enhanced remote situational awareness, with specific features aimed towards reconnaissance and surveillance, and target identification and designation missions. This same sensor is also applicable t ...

  4. Nano-BiCMOS Night Vision Camera

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A08008

    Night vision capability is one of the most important battlefield advantages of the U.S. military, especially in today’s asymmetric warfare. The Gen III night vision goggles in service today is based on the vacuum tube technology with a semiconductor photo cathode, resulting in limitations on view angle, size, manufacturing cost and device operating lifetime. The requirement of special training i ...

  5. High Sensitivity Rugged Array Detectors for Field Deployed Instruments: Low-Light Level Camera for Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and Ram

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A06065

    Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) and Raman spectroscopy are developing rapidly for chemical and biochemical sensing applications. There is an urgent need for high-sensitivity detectors so as to minimize sample quantity and maximize detection range from the source. In most field-deployable spectrometers, a photo-detector array is used for analyzing the spectral contents. The sensitivitie ...

  6. Modeling Culturally Accurate Behavior via Multiplayer Game Environments

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: OSD06CR2

    Military simulations involving non-player characters (NPCs) representing non-US cultures are becoming increasingly important for training and mission rehearsal. However, creating culturally-realistic behaviors for these characters remains a technical challenge due to the lack of a clear standard or process for creating behaviors that are consistent with a given culture. This effort proposes a so ...

  7. Augmented Reality for Enhancing Combat Medic Skills Training (MedSkills)

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: OSD08H08

    Combat medics provide battlefield medical care under austere conditions and respond to traumas less frequently seen in civilian settings. CHI Systems, Inc. proposes to team with the Institute for Simulation and Training to address training for combat medics through the application of augmented reality technologies combined with manikins and immersive simulations. Specifically, in Phase I, we pro ...

  8. Missile/UAV Dispense Interference Modeling


    The innovation is that of using blast-based concepts for the hypersonic/endo dispense of an array of small hardened projectiles (SHAPs) from an interceptor missile. Hit-to-kill successes using this SHAP concept will be significantly enhanced from that of conventional, single warhead concepts, akin to the improved probability of hitting a fast moving object with buckshot in comparison to a single ...

  9. Transpiration Cooling Computational Fluid Dynamics Submodel


    This proposal entails the development of specialized CFD models which can analyze transpiration cooling processes in complex high-speed environments. This is of significant importance to the Army since “well-designed” transpiration concepts are needed on missile systems that can provide reductions in both heat transfer and skin friction, resulting in improvements in overall performance. The ...

  10. Advanced Scramjet Engine/Vehicle Design


    This program entails designing a Mach 10, scramjet propelled missile system using advanced CFD and design-optimization tools. The CFD codes were validated using full-scale data sets obtained from tests performed in the LENS shock tunnel facility. They contain advanced turbulence and thermochemical models. A preliminary rocket boosted and scramjet propelled concept vehicle will be designed meeting ...
